At Perrinville Family Dentistry, we specialize in several cosmetic services aimed at improving the appearance of your teeth and overall smile. From minor cosmetic changes to full-tooth restorations, we have got you covered!

Teeth Whitening

One of the most common complaints we receive involves the brightness of our patients’ smiles. For this reason, we offer professional teeth whitening treatment. Teeth whitening is one of the most basic and cost-effective ways to improve your smile.

As we get older, our teeth pick up stains from certain foods, drinks, medications, and personal habits. These stains, also known as extrinsic stains, are easy to remove with a bleaching solution. However, many store-bought bleaching products leave people dissatisfied with the results. Because we are trained professionals, we use a bleaching agent with a much higher concentration than store-bought alternatives. Our whitening treatment could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just a single appointment!

Porcelain Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that completely covers the visible portion of a damaged or decayed tooth. In previous years, a dental crown was fabricated using a gold or silver amalgam. These days, porcelain is usually the material of choice. Porcelain is a ceramic compound that mimics the light-reflective properties of natural enamel. It can also be textured and color-matched to your existing teeth. Thanks to porcelain and other ceramics, crowns can also be used to fix the aesthetics of an unsightly tooth.

Placing Dental Crowns

You can choose same day crowns or a longer multi-day procedure. The process may differ accordingly. The steps for placing dental crowns include:
•  An oral examination and identification of the problem
•  Preparing the tooth through cleaning and filing
•  Creating an impression of the tooth and surrounding teeth
•  Placing a temporary crown and sending the impression to the lab
•  Fusing the permanent crown to your tooth

Same day crowns skip the multiple appointments and give you your dental crowns in a single day. You get done with the examination and dental crown procedure on the same day.

Types of Dental Crowns

You may have chipped or broken your tooth at some point and postponed treatment. If you are wondering whether a solution exists, dental crowns are the best answer! Dental crowns can provide people with a long-term solution for damaged teeth. This solution doesn’t just have an aesthetic advantage but many other benefits relating to hygiene. Dental crowns can prevent bacteria accumulation and promote a better lifestyle by reducing food restrictions. At Perrinville Family Dentistry, Gary J. Jacky, DMD and can provide you with a consultation and examination, guiding you through the process from day one of placing dental crowns to the final stretch.

Dental Veneers

A dental veneer is a razor-thin shell that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth. Like our dental crowns, our veneers are typically made from porcelain. Veneers can be used to fix teeth that are severely discolored, worn down, chipped or broken, misaligned, uneven, irregularly shaped, or even gapped. During the procedure, we have to remove a small amount of enamel to accommodate the thickness of the veneer. For this reason, the veneer procedure is considered irreversible.

Veneers vs. Dental Crowns

Often, people need dental restoration after poor dental hygiene or accidents. In such instances, they either require dental crowns or veneers. The state of your teeth and your restoration goals will determine whether you need veneers or a dental crown. At Perrinville Family Dentistry, Gary J. Jacky, DMD will assess your condition and discuss your preference before starting your treatment. Except for all-metal crowns, porcelain veneers and crowns can be made to match the color of your natural teeth.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding involves the application of composite resin, a putty-like material, to the surface of an aesthetically displeasing tooth. For example, dental bonding is an excellent solution for minor chips or cracks. During the procedure, the composite resin will be color-matched to the existing shade of your enamel, making it virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.

Dental Sealants

A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating that prevents cavities and tooth decay. Sealants are usually applied to the occlusal (bite) surface of the molars and premolars. These teeth possess deep grooves and fissures that are much harder to clean, especially for children and teenagers. Sometimes the grooves are so thin that the bristles of a toothbrush are rendered essentially ineffective. A sealant will provide a more even brushing surface and seal off the enamel from harmful bacteria. Preventing tooth decay will ensure your child’s smile remains beautiful for years to come!
